Hey peeps,

Just had an idea for a new thread inspired by bebedawl....

What have you worked as in the past? I've had loads of jobs over the years

have been... (roughly in chronological order)

a potato picker
a strawberry picker
newspaper boy
shelf-stacker
checkout operator
catering assistant.... sorry "Food Operative"
cleaner
barman
teamleader in a pub
call centre agent
bank clerk
technical support advisor
English language teaching assistant

I've graduated now and am in my first proper job as a marketing strategist.

Had much more fun as a strawberry picker though. All I did was eat the fruit, so they sacked me!!!:lol:

    -receptionist, this job didnt suck but the other staff did
    -cloakroom person in a nightclub, the manager sucked

    All those were p/time coz im in college.

    I started a new parttime job on wed, done 2 days so far and I think i hate it :( What'll I do? :( Its just a counter assistant type job, kinda boring, but the other staff arent nice at all. They dont have any conversation with each other. Im used to having a laugh in work. I dunno what to do, i really need a job :(

    I know, it's all crap. We know it's crap, the customers know it's crap, the managment knows it's crap, yet they continue to make up stupid job titles. :(

    Well I'm only 17 so my list is short and sweet!

    I worked at a insurance company with databases (I didn't even get a job title!!)
    Then I got a job at Debenhams (I'm still there now!) and coz thats only Sundays, I got a Saturday job at a shop called Savers - and quit after one day coz it was absolute wank.

    I'm gonna work at Debenhams forever and be a manager - coz office jobs are shit and retail is fun fun fun :p
